have commented since on chris's salient commitment to the people of benghazi. john thorn writing in the christian science monitor noted that when he passed in the street, the young men would call out, hello, chris. they knew his face. would laugh and say hello always. this is the right way to deal with our people, he said. libyan friends said he was always ready to put his country first. he shone by being himself, interested in the lives of ordinary people. his death was met with shock and sadness in libya. feelings with regard to americans that are rare in that part of the world these days. for me that judgment captures key characteristics of chris and his approach to life and work. secretary of state hillary clinton noted chris's swearing in as ambassador to libya on an earlier tour, he was visiting roman ruins at one of the tourist sites in libya. he was trailed by gadhafi security men who were obviously intimidating to other tourists. as she recounted it, he reached over to one of the men, stole his camera out of his hands and started taking pictures of the men who had been f

information that susan rice had but john mccain was out there blabbing thorn saying she should have known better. as federal budget she doesn't have good enough to be in is that for this system and really it's discouraging for senator mccain who in the past i think has had wide respect on boothe both sides of the i'll it ton is to he was running against a wing er so the only reason he's doing this is out of personal weak or some other cranky motive and he just needs to give it up and lindsey graham needs to give it up, too. they need to suck it up and start to work across the aisle like they have in the past and show some basic respect for the president of the united states. >> this is the first shot over the bough as to how the next congress are going to feel about what another. do you think mccain can stop her. >> oh, sure, they can stop her in the senate. it only takes a couple of people to phil buster start. then in i they don't back down, did will be for confirm. >> a lot of the -- maybe drink something harder and try to work this out and establish some kind of relationship on behalf
